What we doEach January, we kickoff our season by learning a "game" for a robot to play set forth by an organization called FIRST. Then we have six weeks (known as build season) to plan, build, and program a robot for our team. After build season, we compete in the Connecticut Regional (and The WPI Regional in 2010 and the Chesapeake Regional in 2011) and the international championship in St. Louis, Missouri. Outside of this "season" between Kickoff and the Championship, we do dozens of community demos and fundraisers to build awareness about science, technology, and robotics.
How we do itBuilding our robot as well as building our team requires mechanical, programming, engineering, business, marketing, and leadership skills, which our members learn and develop on the team thanks to experienced team members and our adult leaders and mentors. We would be nowhere without our sponsors and mentors. The knowledge and support of our mentors are what makes the program so fun and educational. Most importantly, we would like to thank UTC Fire and Security who helps more than anybody to make our team possible. For more information, please visit our Mentor and Sponsor pages.
